About me

My focus stands within the image, the creativity behind building concepts and the communication of ideas. I have good knowledge of editing softwares and am experienced with darkroom photography processes as well as digital video and audio files. I am fully bilingual in French and English and have good abilities in Spanish as well as basic spoken Italian skills. I have worked as an author and art critic for the Wall Street International Magazine for two years. This opportunity gave me the chance to deepen my passion and analytical skills within the art-realm and has proven to broaden my horizons with the press world, an aspect closely linked with art, artistic events and galleries. Along with this, since my Bachelors degree in Photography at Camberwell College of Arts (University of the Arts London), I have organised independent curatorial projects that gave rise to a group shows in London and my hometown, Geneva, Switzerland. These events were exhibitions produced by an international artist collective that I am part of called Beyond The Ground. I oversaw all the curatorial, management, communication/liaison with the press and promotion of the event. This experience has given me an insight on the various tasks involved in building and managing exhibitions as well as a different side to art that I had not touched upon beforehand. I have also worked in an art centre for members suffering from mental disabilities. I taught creative writing and ceramics. This experience has given me yet another perspective on the creative world and knowledge on how to use my artistic skills in a social, therapeutical context. I am now looking for art-related jobs whether in art galleries, museums, or social community art projects. I am looking for gallery assistant work, as well as art teaching or art project management/events organising. Whilst looking for work I am awaiting to attend a Masters in Sculpture / Fine Art starting October 2017.

Work history

Fine Artist

Eva Scherly

Jun 2014
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I am part of an international artist collective called Beyond The Ground that has exhibited in the United Kingdom and Switzerland. I have exhibited and organised all the aspects of the exhibition in Switzerland. These tasks included, curating, organisation of materials, press and media liaison, promotional management and PR. Aside from the collective, I produce, sell and exhibit my own work ranging from photography, sculpture, installation or video-projection. The varied tasks embedded in the organisation and development of art events have brought me and the collective I work for press coverage and links with museums and art establishments. Being in close link with the media and having managed a debate with guest speakers such as a sociologist, an ethno-psychiatrist, a historian, journalists and the Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Geneva, Switzerland has given me the chance to grow within my personal experience and develop my understanding in art events. Working on both sides of the spectrum in the art world; as a practitioner and managing exhibitions, I feel that I have the skills to develop in establishments working and supporting artistic events. Being exposed to the array of tasks needing to be handled during the organisation of artistic events, I am positive that I can deepen my knowledge and understanding whilst evolving in a creative environment.

2016

Art teacher

Core Arts LTD.

Oct 2015 - Jun 2016
  • 1 St Barnabas Terrace, London E9 6DJ, UK
  • Freelance
  • I was in charge of assisting the creative writing and the ceramics courses at Core Arts: a mental health Day Care Service providing artistic and creative workshops in order to support recovery, social inclusion and mental wellbeing.

2016

Writer, art critic

Wall Street International Magazine

Dec 2014 - Jun 2016
  • Budva Municipality, Montenegro
  • Freelance
  • I had been hired to cover artistic events occurring in Europe. My job included the production of one article each month promoting or criticising an event of my choice within the art world. I had the freedom of deciding which show or event to cover and represent the Magazines name in order to promote and conceptualise the new and emerging art scene in Europe. Working for this magazine has given me the opportunity to constantly be in touch with the contemporary art world in Europe and to broaden my knowledge and network alongside various artists. I feel that, as a dedicated author and having a passion for contemporary art, I have contributed to promote a positive selection of events for all the readers. Along with developing my critical analysis in writing and the passion I hold for literature and art, working for the Wall Street International Magazine has given me the opportunity to exchange with all areas within the art world whether it be the artists themselves or gallery owners and museums. Being in touch with such a wide array of people and establishments has broadened my understanding of the management and work involved 'behind the scenes' of artistic events.

Education

2015

Foundation in Art Therapy Course Certificate

British Association of Art Therapists

Dec 2015 - Dec 2015
  • 24-27 White Lion St, London N1 9PD, UK
  • This foundation in art therapy course was a one week introduction to the profession and concepts behind art therapy. I decided to attend this course as a means to gain information on the subject, considering I had been working in a social art environment at the time - teaching adults with mental health issues different art forms. This course gave me a good understanding of the profession and was a great experience to be part of.

2014

BA (hons) Photography

University Of The Arts London

Oct 2011 - Jul 2014
  • 45-65 Peckham Rd, London SE5 8UF, UK
  • I completed a bachelor in Photography at Camberwell College of Arts in 2014. This degree permitted me to focus my practice and explore a wide range of art forms. The structure of my undergraduate degree permitted me to explore a multitude of approaches towards the communication of my ideas. This clearly set each student’s practice beyond the course title of ‘Photography’, diving into concepts relating to the image as a complex and varied entity.

2011

Art and Design Foundation Diploma

University Of The Arts London

Sep 2010 - Jun 2011
  • 45-65 Peckham Rd, London SE5 8UF, UK
  • Before starting an undergraduate degree, I decided to embark on a foundation diploma course, in order to fully engage with the production of artwork in a fine art context. This was a 1 year course.
